Cambium Networks Joins FB’s Express Wi-Fi Certified Ecosystem
The company is proud of the progress accomplished through partnering with Cambium Networks since the inception of Express Wi-Fi Certified, helping operators to offer better Wi-Fi experiences at scale.
Cambium Networks has now become one of the first Wi-Fi vendors to join Facebook's Express Wi-Fi Certified ecosystem, which is a programme that allows access point manufacturers to build Wi-Fi hardware compatible with Express Wi-Fi, a solution to help operators and local entrepreneurs offer fast and affordable internet access in public spaces. Express Wi-Fi seeks to help operators provide internet to those who don’t have reliable or affordable access, while at the same time enabling local entrepreneurs to build a business of their own. Express Wi-Fi is currently available in India, Indonesia, Kenya, Nigeria and Tanzania.
Guy Mordecai, Product Lead for Express Wi-Fi at Facebook said that through their work with leading Wi-Fi vendors, the company hopes to expand the Express Wi-Fi ecosystem. It is also keen on accelerating innovation, which in turn would provide a sustainable business model for fast and affordable Wi-Fi at a meaningful scale. The company is proud of the progress accomplished through partnering with Cambium Networks since the inception of Express Wi-Fi Certified, helping operators to offer better Wi-Fi experiences at scale, he said.
Atul Bhatnagar, President and CEO of Cambium Networks, on his parts, said that the Express Wi-Fi Certified programme is a natural fit for Cambium Networks given its strong history of designing robust wireless networks around the world for more than a decade. In line with its mission of bringing affordable connectivity to the world, the company is pleased to collaborate with Facebook by enabling rapid network deployment with its Frictionless Wi-Fi cnPilot™ enterprise access solution. The company hopes to continue this work and invites the larger technology, finance, government and social empowerment communities to join them in connecting the approximately 3.8 billion unconnected people.
